REPORTS!!!! Corvairs Northwest Annual Fall Tune-Up Day Sat. Nov 18th! smileys with beer

Kent Sullivan sez;


Corvairs Northwest is once again having its Fall Tune-up Day and Potluck on Saturday, November 18, 2017, from 9AM to 3 PM, at Kent Sullivan's shop in Kirkland, Washington, near Seattle.

Gather up any parts you want to install on your Corvair, your tool box if you have one, and come to the annual event. Bring along your favorite hot dish, salad or dessert and a chair. We will have tables available but chairs are at a premium.

Soft drinks will be provided, as well as donuts and coffee for the early birds. You can use the shop hoist to check out the underside of your rig, to look for any issues, and to perform any maintenance needed, plus oil changes and chassis lube. In addition, you can pick the brains of several Corvair experts about any Corvair issues you may be experiencing. If you have a trunk load of parts to swap or sell, bring those as well.

We hope to have a tech session or two. Installation of the 5-speed transmission in Kent's ’66 500 coupe is nearly complete, so he's pretty sure it will be sorted out by then!

Take exit 17 from I-405 and proceed east up the hill to 125th Ave. NE. Turn right and go to the end of the street.

Lunch will be at about noon.

The installation of the 5 speed in Kent's car IS COMPLETE and a tech session and rides will be given during the day. Come one, come all! Well, maybe not all of you as I don't think we have enough space!

Attached are some pics from today’s tuneup day at Kent’s shop in Kirkland.

Perhaps it was the unusually dry November day here in the NW that brought out the people, but it was a great turn out of Corvairs and their owners from Oregon, Washington and British Columbia. Steve Brown from CORSA Oregon did a tech presentations on early/FC rear wheel bearing rebuilding and Kevin Nash showed a prototype high efficient fan he his working on.Lastly, the potluck lunch was ample and delicious too!

Enjoy the pics.

Bill

Hi Matt- Those are my pictures.

Dan was here and when he moved his van so I didn't need to park in the cul-de-sac he must have kept going.

I dropped in early and enjoyed the event, visiting with folks from Oregon and Canada as well as the locals. I knew that we were in good hands when Bill Chellis came down. I had a job to do up in Oak Harbor so I needed to get on the road.

More photos have been posted on the Corvairs Northwest Facebook page as well.

Thanks to all that made this a Vairy fabulous day!

Great pictures, Bill!

As others have said, we had great weather and a great turnout, and several new members! So cool to meet these new folks and to see cars I hadn't seen before. We had an abundance of expertise on-hand so many problems were diagnosed and fixed, and more than a few parts lists made! The lift came in handy for list-making since it's hard to see what's going on underneath unless you can really get under there and look up.

As always, I had a great time seeing all my club members, and the great progress made on their projects. I learned a lot about what's really involved in re-building early rear axle bearings!!
